The McCaulou's department store in Moraga closed temporarily as of Thursday Feb. 2 because of rain damage. Store owner David McCaulou said that before reopening, the store will be remodeled and the roof repaired. McCaulou added that the rain will have to stop before work starts on the roof and that it will take several months before the store reopens. Windows display and lights should stay on during the closure.
The retail chain owner promises all will be done as soon as possible. The roof repair will be carried out in cooperation with the property owner. "Then what we will need in Moraga is more shoppers," says the businessman, who wants to see some development in the town. - Sophie Braccini
